Tray with matching wine glasses…

Those trays I did for my Etsy shop at Christmas were a resounding failure, so I’ve been redoing them. This one started as a doodle whilst watching TV and, well….here’s what I did:-

I started my doodle and realised that it was big enough to cover the base of a tray so I cut it to size and continued to draw this pattern…img_7648.jpg.

Whether you can draw or not, you should try this type of doodling, it’s a bit like the colouring- in craze, your mind can wander but I find you do rather drift off into a pleasant frame of mind rather than stressing about anything. It could be just me but give it a go… it’s all just circles and little loops nothing too tricky.

I then decided to add some pink circles…

and this is the final piece… img_7653.jpg I stuck it to the base of the tray and varnished it.

I used my glass paints  and a sponge dobber to splodge the two shades of pink on the glasses. I let the first colour dry before adding the second.

Once dry I added a little detail with a black glass felt tip pen. The glasses were then baked to fix the colour.
